8:02 am
tolerate this and as we speak as i told you mr president just now israel is responding forcefully to this wanton aggression i have a simple message to israel's enemies we will do whatever we must do to defend our people and defend our state are a force that has its updates on the israel gaza border. well despite reports of a ceasefire despite announcements of a ceasefire coming from senior hamas officials one of whom said that on tuesday the ministries and schools would be open again inside gaza there has been continued strikes coming from the israeli side and indeed rockets being fired out of gaza territory as well we heard some intercepted near our position here near the northern area of the gaza border in israeli territory and we could still hear strikes going on in the background as well that is the message we're getting from
8:03 am
our colleagues inside gaza that after this ten pm local time cease fire arrangements that have been declared by hamas there were still israeli strikes continuing and as i say we have seen rockets still coming out of gaza as well all of this following what happened earlier on tuesday a rocket fired out of gaza territory hitting an israeli family home northeast of tel aviv seven members of that family injured in that strike benjamin netanyahu promising a forceful act reaction to that he is in the middle of a very hard fought election campaign in which he has been criticized by his main challenger the former israeli army chief benny gantz for his gaza policy for not bringing results in terms of containing hamas and so we were expecting a forceful and indeed major israeli military operation multi-story buildings housing what the israeli military says were the hamas internal security and an
8:04 am
insurance building which it said was a secret base for the military intelligence another services as well as is now hani the political leader of hamas his office building three major targets already destroyed inside gaza the army was promising that there was more to come al-jazeera arabic correspond the missions are cute reports from the scene of one of the israeli airstrikes on gaza. i thought. this is the result of one of the israeli airstrikes that hits a residential building here in central gaza the first floor of the building hosted the headquarters of the insurance company the top floors were residential apartments which had been fully destroyed but residents had hardly any time to escape the strike fleeing the building only minutes before it was destroyed by israeli jets the house was hit first by a number of drone missiles then israeli jets fully destroyed it civil defense and
8:05 am
ambulances have arrived in this area is full of residential buildings hitting such buildings in central gaza is a sign of an escalation well the launch of the air strikes came as the u.s. officially recognized israel's claim to sovereignty over the occupied golan heights in contravention of international law and the un resolution diplomatic editor james bays reports. the u.n. secretary general here in new york is watching the situation in gaza with great concern. he's long warned of the dangers of a new conflict a new conflict now underway the secretary general is gravely concerned by the latest developments regarding gaza today's firing of a rocket from gaza towards israel is a serious and unacceptable violation we're also wear of the latest reports of firing on gaza in a monitoring events we urge all sides to exercise maximum restraint this very moment the secretary general spokesman was briefing reporters president trump was
8:06 am
signing his declaration recognizing israel's sovereignty over the go land a direct challenge to the international consensus on the issue for the secretary general it is clear that the status of golan is not change the u.s. policy on the golan is reflected in the relevant resolutions of the security council you may notice a reticence to criticize president trump even though there's little doubt his proclamation is in breach of international law this will be a difficult issue too for the u.s. is close allies on the u.n. security council which meets to discuss israel palestine on choose day since the start of the trumpet ministration the council has allowed the u.s. to lead diplomacy on this file but there is growing unease among diplomats on gaza don't expect any action other than council members adding their voices to the calls for restraint on gaulin don't expect any action it all other council members of very unhappy about president trump's decision but even if they wanted to come up
8:07 am
with a statement condemning it the u.s. would block it james pays out his era of the united nations or trumps proclamation has received international condemnation with syria calling it a blatant attack on its sovereignty and territorial integrity it says it has a right to reclaim the territory russia's also. warned that the move would further deteriorate the situation in the region turkey says the decision by the us is unacceptable and will take action against the moon and the arab league has described transaction as illegitimate israel occupies nearly two thirds of the wind a girl on heights as a result of the nine hundred sixty seven conflict. general gathering of the pro israel group known as a pac continues in washington u.s. vice president mike pence addressed the conference and expressed support for strong ties with israel mike hanna reports. tumultuous applause for u.s. vice president mike pence the trumpet ministration is wildly popular in israel and
8:08 am
this reflected in what is nominally a bipartisan lobbying organization pen seizing the opportunity to hammer democratic party members who stayed away from the gathering in pointed a protest against the methods of the pro israeli lobby eight democratic candidates for president are actually boycotting this very conference so let me be clear on this point. anyone who aspires to the highest office in the land should not be afraid to stand with the strongest supporters of israel in america restrained applause for the democratic party leaders that did turn up including both the senate minority leader and speaker of the house. the major event of the day though took place down the road where prime minister benjamin netanyahu arrived for a meeting with the u.s. president to mark the occasion by signing a presidential decree recognizing israel's claim to suffering teeth over the
8:09 am
occupied golan heights. met by the israeli prime minister's breathless gratitude mr president over the years israel has been blessed to have many friends who sat in the oval office. but israel has never a better friend than you israeli opposition leader benny gantz as grateful as the prime minister for the u.s. move but at the same time warning against israel taking sides in the u.s. political process we want all of america republicans and democrats. all of america's republican and democrats to move forward with us in this spirit of true by brute theirs and that didn't save the south did served us so well in the past all delegates here are keenly aware of the elections taking place in israel next month many will be voting in that one but
